I have asked several people and cannot get a straight answer, but as a law enforcement officer, we are allowed to carry our own personal patrol rifles on duty at my agency. Several guys have SBRs and I am considering getting a new upper for mine. I work for an agency that is approximately 7 miles from the state line, which we have a lot of vehicle pursuits head towards. How would this work if any of us had SBRs with us and ended up in a pursuit across state lines? I understand that outside of a law enforcement capacity, that one cannot transport NFA items across state lines with the exception of suppressors without first notifying the ATF and getting the proper approval, but I cannot find anything anywhere that says anything about LE while on duty.

I worked at a dept that's city limits was the Louisiana state line for 25 years. We had numerous pursuits across the state line and I never really worried about the dept issued SBS I had with me.. Never really ever thought about it, of course I didn't know a whole lot about NFA back then. My Chief that helped me register the seized shotgun to the dept was an ex ATF agent and never cautioned me about it.

We have department SBSs and SBRs, which I could care less about. I was just more concerned about using a personal weapon while on duty. Thank you for your reply. This seems to be one of the possible disadvantages about working at a department right on the state line.

There are no exemptions for a on duty LEO with a personally owned NFA item. Simply fill out a 5320.20 every year stating that you will be crossing the state line at anytime from January 1 to December 31, according to an ATF agent I spoke with. He said the NFA branch will sign off on it.
Thank you sir!! Exactly what I was looking for!!

Sorry to horn in. Would that work for civilians as well?
